The Basics

Any denture journey at our North San Antonio dental office starts with an in-person dental appointment. During this time, Dr. Hijazi will assess the health of your gums, remaining teeth, and other jaws to determine which treatment is most suitable for you.

Next, Dr. Hijazi will take a digital impression of your smile to learn more about how your jaw moves and functions. With these highly detailed impressions, our lab techs can create a set of dentures made just for you and designed to look, fit, and feel natural.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dentures vs. Dental Implants: Which is better?

Both dentures and dental implants serve as proven tooth replacement options. While many dental professionals consider dental implants “the gold standard” for tooth replacement, not everyone qualifies for them or wants them. For those who want the instant gratification of dentures or can’t undergo oral surgery dentures might be a better solution for you.

To fully understand which tooth replacement option is most suitable for you, visit the best dentist for dentures near me, Dr. Hijazi.

How do I take care of my dentures?

Removable dentures require nightly removal and soaking. At least once a day, we strongly advise patients who wear dentures to thoroughly brush them with a denture brush and rinse them to remove any food particles. Also, we suggest brushing the gums, tongue, and roof of the mouth with toothpaste and a soft toothbrush and rinsing the mouth out with antibacterial mouthwash.

Will I need to replace my dentures?

The American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) and Dr. Hijazi recommend evaluating complete and partial dentures for replacement in one of the following scenarios:

  •         If the prosthesis has been in function for more than five years
  •         If the supporting teeth have been lost
  •         If the prosthesis has sufficiently degraded and led to instability
  •         If the patient cannot (or will not) wear the denture
  •         If denture adhesives must be used more than once daily
  •         If chronic inflammation exists beneath the denture base
